Meet the board
In addition to my passion for culture, travel and language, I am very eager to continue and deepen my knowledge with tying best teaching practices to brain-based research. At Johns Hopkins University, I learned to create rigors and nurturing teaching environment through many aspects of the Brain Targeted Teaching Model.
My husband and I raise our children in a dual language household and I am passionate about acquiring and learning multiple languages. We enjoy running our daughters around to dance, ballet, gymnastics, soccer and swimming. Most importantly, we enjoy spending time with extended family and friends.
I began my teaching career in 1995 in the Denver Public Schools/Cleo Wallace Day Treatment Program. It was a true lesson in differentiation because I had students ranging from kindergarten through 5th grade in one classroom. After that, I served as the Special Needs Coordinator at Regis Jesuit High School, and I taught for a time in the Sheridan School District. I have also taught at Littleton Academy, a K-8, Core Knowledge charter school.
This year, I am back with older students. I’m a special education teacher at Littleton High School. I look forward to the new challenges and achievements of the students.
I also love to spend time with my husband, Troy, and my two children, Alec (21years) and Paige (15 years). Watching movies is one of our family’s favorite activities, and we love to travel when we can. I enjoy writing fiction and playing the folk harp; but when I have the time, there is nothing I like better than getting lost in a great book.
